Developer swings into action at crumbling Aberdeenshire estate

FM Group has moved on-site to deliver an 18-hole Jack Nicklaus designed golf course and housing development within the grounds of the Ury Estate, Aberdeenshire.

To date the developer has planted 60,000 trees on 30 hectares of land, with work now progressing to deliver homes, infrastructure and a full renovation of the B-listed Ury House by WCP Architects to deliver a hotel.

Nicklaus commented: "From the first day I walked the estate and we discussed the course design, FM Group director Jonathon Milne made it very clear that the goal was to create something that would blend in naturally with the Scottish countryside.

“My philosophy has always been to work with what the natural environment has provided us with, and whenever possible create something that will enhance it, and in many cases create new and better natural habitats.

“My goal is to blend in a golf course that lays naturally over the landscape around Stonehaven, work to protect the existing natural surroundings, and to provide an experience that locals and visitors to Ury Estate will truly enjoy for generations to come.”

The golf course will be available for play from summer 2024.
